Travel Guide: Golden Crown Guest House Accommodations, Hong Kong Itinerary and Expenses

Updated travel guide as of 2017, places mostly covered are Tsim Sha Tsui, Mongkok, Jordan, Victoria Harbour, Sha Tin and Lantau Island. This trip is planned ahead of time from airline to accommodation. It’s best to contact the hotel/guest house directly thru the website. Inquiries and reservation can be done online. Golden Crown Guest House (GCGH) requires a deposit of HK$1000 ($130) via PayPal or credit card, the rest of the balance can be paid upon arrival. The reception also exchange $ to HK$ with rate not lower than 7.7 , they also have discounted tickets to Disneyland, Ocean Park, The Peak Tram, Macau Ferry and the rest of the tourist spots in HK. I recommend purchasing tickets in advance to save time. For detailed travel tips – Travel Guide: Things to do in Hong Kong and Macau where to find the cheap swags and food joints!

Transportation to and from airport, purchase Octopus card at International Airport Arrivals, this card is refundable. There options to reach the city proper: bus (CityFlyer), MTR (airport express), or taxi. Airport bus is the most convenient route to get to the city proper.

Guest house in the city are typically small, they maximize space well to compensate the expensive lifestyle and culture. If you yearn for more spacious accommodation and quality service there are hotels that offers such kind of service. Since our itinerary is mostly on the road, we retire at almost 11-12 midnight, thus this set-up suits our accommodation requirements.

When in Tsim Sha Tsui you can walk around endlessly for a day-tour adventure. There’s so much activities to get preoccupied with from dining, shopping, sightseeing, street photography and the area is swarmed with landmarks to wander and fabricate vivid memories. These are the notable local spot is TST:

– Nathan Road
– Canton Road
– Granville Road: Non-branded shopping, Lung Shing Dispensary (cheapest source of cosmetics, perfume, and body care).

– Kowloon City and Kowloon Walled City Park
– The Peninsula Hong Kong
– Shopping district: Harbour City, Park Lane Shopper’s Boulevard
– HK China Ferry Terminal (to Macau)
– Sky 100 (closer to Kowloon Station)

From personal experience, affordable and authentic food we enjoyed most are from the streets of Haiphong Road, Parkes and outlaying street in Jordan, and Mongkok. Nathan Road adjacent to Jordan has the creamier egg waffle compare with that from Hong Kong Snack from the Parkes Street. We visited twice the bakeshop (Joiex) from Haiphong, must try are their croissants, egg tarts, food, tarts, and nut cookies. Night food market is alive at Jordan in Parkes Street. We love the Hong Kong Spice Crabs menu from seafoods to spicy chicken wings and garlic broccoli. This street tranforms to traditional HK restaurant, across the Hong Kong Spice Crabs, we tried the authentic noodles, fried noodles beef briskets, fish skin side dish, seaweed soups, etc. But the coffee, honey-lemon and aloe juices and milk tea are always must-haves for every order, this is to compare the difference of milk tea taste buds. What we like from traditional restaurants are the relish and herb dressings.
